The Hicks Morley Scholarship, made possible by a generous donation from the law firm Hicks Morley Hamilton Stewart Storie LLP, recognizes the academic excellence of a student entering her/his third year of study in the full-time Politics and Governance BA program based on his/her performance in the second year of study. The scholarship also recognizes the student’s contributions to the program, to the University, and to his/her peers.
The Solly Patel Essay Prize was created to honour a former Chair of the Department of Politics and Public Administration, who retired in 1996 and died in 2006. Faculty teaching any Politics or Public Administration course may nominate for the award an essay by any student in any Ryerson program in which the main essay is on a topic related to political or social theory. Nominations are adjudicated by the Awards Committee of the Department of Politics and Public Administration.
The Solly Patel Memorial Entrance Award was created in 2009 to honour the memory of Solly Patel, who was a faculty member in the Department of Politics and School of Public Administration (as it then was), and served a term as the Department Chair in the 1980s. Solly Patel retired in 1996, after 29 years of dedicated and distinguished service to Ryerson, and returned to South Africa, where he died on 30 March 2006 at age 71 years. The endowed award was made possible through a generous donation by his sister, Khatija Patel.
The Dean’s List consists of students who maintain a GPA of at least 3.67 over a minimum of 4 courses in each term
